Non-Traditional Winter Greetings Holiday Card, Copics, Distress Inks


Hello friends! Meg here, with a non-traditional colored holiday card!

I started this card by distress ink-blending the background. I used Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean distress inks and a Ranger ink blending tool. I added to the background some Moonstone (clear) glimmer texture paste by Nuvo - Tonic Studios. I applied it through a falling snow stencil by MFT stamps. I added two small strips of silver and black cardstock to the left side of the panel, once the texture paste dried. 

Once I liked the way my background looked, I printed the adorable birdie winter digital stamp from my laser printer. I began coloring the smallest details first - the lights and Christmas ornaments. I colored these using my Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens and Kaisercraft gel pens. I then colored the cutest digi bird with my copic markers. My intent was to match the bird with the ink-blended background. I used the blue-green family for most of the bird; BG05, BG07 and BG09. I coated the white part of the eyes with B000. I colored the white part of the winter hat with CO, C1 and C3. I used the purple Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen to add polka dots to the hat and scarf.


I then colored some white scrap paper with the Wilted Violet distress ink. I wanted the sentiment strip to match the background perfectly. The sentiment is from a Stampendous snowman clear stamp set and reads 'winter greetings.' I heat embossed the sentiment with white, Hero Arts embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my non-tradition holiday card! I wish everyone a happy, blessed, healthy and safe holiday season! Thank you for stopping by!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.
















On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
